Strawberry Christmas Ring
An Easy Christmas Dessert Recipe

Just Add Prepare The Wreath
• 14 inch/34 cm Styrofoam wreath

• Aluminum foil

• Wrap the craft ring generously in aluminum foil so that it is thoroughly sealed. You don't want food touching the Styrofoam

• Depending on the width of the foil, you'll use between 6 - 7 sheets of foil

• Place the covered ring on a large tray or chopping board as the working surface

Just Add Insert Fruit & Truffles
• Lots of toothpicks

• 4 pounds/2 kg largest strawberries

• 12 - 16 truffles

• Rinse and thoroughly dry the strawberries. You may have to leave them for an hour to be sure they are completely dry

• Do not trim nor hull them. Leave them intact

• Insert a toothpick into the well wrapped ring so that half of it is embedded. Pop a strawberry on the toothpick, base downwards

• Repeat creating a close cluster of 10 - 12 of the fruit. Notice in the image, 3 or 4 of the berries will be turned upwards to that the green leaves are on top, creating a lovely contrast

• Now do the same with the truffles, creating a cluster of 3

• Repeat this easy procedure, creating another cluster of berries, continuing in the same pattern till this Christmas dessert is covered with strawberries and truffles

• If it is not to be served immediately, cover with generous layers of cling wrap and refrigerate

Just Add Display

• A large round platter

• 3 Christmas baubles

• 2 cups of rocket salad leaves

• When it is to be displayed on serving, transfer the fruit ring onto the serving platter and place Christmas lights in the center. Scatter rocket salad leaves around filling the center space

• Have small cake tongs available for your guests to help themselves to the truffles and strawberries. They'll just lift them off the toothpicks

I used large strawberries purchased on Christmas Eve and made up the fruit ring that day. So they were still very fresh on Christmas Day.

I used about 40 large strawberries for this incredibly easy Christmas recipe.

This dessert looked so sensational, all our guests took photos of it. Naturally it tasted superb, being fresh, best quality fruit.

Tips For Easy Christmas Recipes

Purchase the Styrofoam ring from a craft store, but be sure to ask for non-toxic material.

Don't hull the berries. They are much firmer and stay on the toothpicks when whole.

While our recipes may be simple to prepare, a good presentation makes all the difference. Create a contrast in colors by inserting some greenery through the red display. In the photos you'll see we've done this by upturning the berry to show the strawberry leaves. As an alternative, pin bunches of mint.
